The waste pipe is clear and connected under the sink.
When I start a new cycle the dishwasher will fill but not drain.

Hi Terry

Disconect the hose from the sink and pull the hose back to the machine
+Lay the hose along the floor from the back of the machine, into a shallow bowl
Does the water flow into the bowl?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Yes the water flows into the bowl.
Expert:  Rob replied 2 years ago.

so get a bucket and put the bucket on thetop of the machine, with the hose in the bucket

Start a new cycle. Does the water get pumped into the bucket, then it starts to fill?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
There is no water pumping into the bucket on top of the machine.
The inlet/drain light is flashing and the machine is full of water.
Expert:  Rob replied 2 years ago.

so this indicates that the problem is still the drain pump not running

When you first a=start any new cycle the drain pump should run for about 1 minute.
Its not doing this so yu need to check the wiring to the pump and test it for 240v at the beginning of the cycle
If you have 240v there, then the pump is faulty
If you dont, the likely culprit ids the main PCB not sending the signal to the pump

Lower the hose to the floor again to drain the water

If you ned more help, please just ask
